Chitra Rajan Residence designed by Benny Kuriakose & Associates has been documented by Buildofy. In the video, the principal designer, Dr. Benny Kuriakose, gives an outline of the home and discusses how he and client collaborated on many elements to create this serene, contemplative space. “ I wanted a residence which was a shared residence with inhabitants from the nature world ” in the words of Mrs. Chitra.This rustic house in Chennai, surrounded by a lush green landscape garden, is a relaxing haven in the middle of the bustling noises of the city. Time tends to slow down as one enters the home after experiencing the stillness of the lily pond and the rawness of the porch out front. The sunken floor space in the foyer and the use of natural stone and timber add to the traditional charm of the house. The rugged look of this modern traditional house is completed by the reclaimed timber finish gate, raw furniture, hardwood shutters, and dark coloured textured tiles.
With its wide-open spaces, sit-outs, and water feature, Chitra Rajan is a contemporary house that seamlessly integrates peace and comfort into the busy lives of the occupants. In the official website page of Buildofy, the full video and eBook pdf with detailed floor plan, images and information on materials are available.
